Dear Sean Payton: Allow us to introduce you to the internet

Posted By on Mon, Sep 13, 2010 at 9:55 PM

Sean Payton had himself a hell of a weekend. First the Saints opened up their title defense with a win over the Minnesota Vikings, then he got his college jersey number retired at Eastern Illinois University and now we get to see pictures of him drunk on the internet:

That's a screen grab from a post this morning on the always-excellent Deadspin.com. You know, it's not that bad. Well not as bad as this shot (from another Deadspin post):

Now we're not going to make a ruckus about Sean Payton getting drunk at a college bar near his alma mater. Not when the Saints have 11 days between games and got the entire weekend off (players and coaches get back to work tomorrow). And, by all means, we support Payton flashing his ring in bars all over the place (much like we supported Drew Brees stopping by Lucy's after the Championship parade). But in this day in age, maybe, just maybe, as a head coach of the defending Super Bowl Champions, you should show a little more restraint in letting people take your picture when you're having a good ol' drinkin time.

Or else, you never know. Your drunken mug will end up on a very popular sports blog and their editor may or may not contact a (slightly) less-popular local New Orleans blog and raise questions about whether the local football coach likes to party.

Just sayin'.
